- Willow Biosciences announces a partnership with a leading Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient manufacturer to create a more sustainable, cost-effective production process.
- The collaboration aims to optimize an existing commercial biomanufacturing process for better performance and scalability.
- This initiative marks Willow’s commitment to enhancing the availability and efficiency of essential health ingredients through sustainable practices.
Willow Biosciences Inc., focused on biotechnological advancements for the industrial production of high-purity, consistent, and eco-friendly ingredients, has unveiled a strategic collaboration with a top Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) producer. This partnership is set to evolve the manufacturing process of a key, high-demand API by making it more sustainable and cost-efficient.
Underpinning this alliance is the shared goal of redefining API production to emphasize sustainability without compromising on cost or waste. By leveraging Willow’s expertise in scalable biomanufacturing processes, the project aims to refine and enhance an existing production method, ensuring it meets the growing global demand more effectively.
“We are excited to once again apply our technology platform to the manufacture of more sustainable APIs for existing, large volume global markets. If successful, we believe that these ingredients essential for human health can be made more broadly available and more efficiently while also delivering significant value to our partner and shareholders.”Dr. Chris Savile, Willow’s President & CEO
Scheduled to span approximately six months, this funded initiative will include stages of development focused on optimizing the biomanufacturing process for increased efficiency and performance. Success in this endeavor promises not only to make crucial health ingredients more accessible but also to deliver substantial value to both partners and their stakeholders.
This collaboration underscores Willow’s role as an innovator in the field of biotechnology, dedicated to the large-scale, sustainable production of pharmaceutical ingredients. Through its FutureGrown™ and BioOxi™ platforms, Willow continues to set new standards in the health and wellness, food and beverage, and personal care sectors, emphasizing the importance of sustainability in industrial manufacturing.
